Dear Cyber63,

Once you get the SWR calibrated, the rings are supposed to be moved together and lock to each other so they do not move. It sounds like the rings need to come down to shorten the antenna some more. Also, we have a PAT12GPK that will sometimes help lower the SWR. Here is the product page link:

Hope that helps!
I am getting 2 to 2.7 with a patriot 12 . The 2 is on ch 1 while the 2.7 is ch 40.
I have tried all I know and can't get it down.Are those tuning rings supposed to me moved as a pair or singles ??? I'm at the point of going postal here.
I have enough aggravation as is with a 980SSB !! Any help ???
I, too, bought a PAT 12 antenna after researching. I liked the style because of limited installation area. After connecting to a new Galaxy DX949, new power supply, new 25 ft RG8X cable, I could not get the SWR below 3. I called technical assistance and he explained the characteristics of the antenna and suggested things to try--like raising 9 ft off the ground. I raised it to about 8 ft and saw little change in SWR. I tried different lengths coax-- 25 ft, 23 ft, 28 ft and 26 ft. Got SWR down to 2 at 26 ft. I adjusted tuning rings the full length of the threads a few times and found that all the way to bottom brought sSWR to 2. couldn't get it any lower until I connected a Knight Ten 2 Checker in the circuit and it brought the SWR to 1.1 to 1.2. It must have a 50 ohm load inside. Anyway that's the best I could do.
Anyone have a solution?
this antenna is tuned to cb 11 meter for it to work properly on 10 or 12 meter it has to be tuned to that far i have not set mine up but do like the light weight of this antenna i am in the mountains with high gusts of wind ...i dont see it blowing to pieces like beams would will be setting atleast 30 foot in the air ...power wise i will test that p.e.p rating as i am one who is a rms power person if it is listed for 100 watts actual hard hitting power it should handle just that ..
i bought this antenna to use with my 10 meter radio..... i am a ham for 40 yrs..this antenna is suppose to be for 26 to 30 mhz......... or 11 and or 10 meter.i installed the antenna on a mast 25 feet in height..... the antenna resonated at24.500 mhz...... didnt make sense.... 2.5 to 3.5 mhz lower than it should have.i did trim the top section.. nothing changed.... so the antenna must be defectivefrom the manufacture..... probably the loading coil is bad, etc.....only conclusion i can come to is the manufacture has no quality control.... whichis the norm now in buyer beware of this antenna....
I bought this antenna and mounted it on a short mast up on my house roof. Tuned my SWR to less than 1.5 on top to bottom range on a Cobra GTL 148 CB radio. Seems to work fine. Have picked up HAM radio operators all over the USA. Works fine for me. Very easy to tune in with the tuning rings.
